trans will go into gear but not move

So on Monday while at a stop light I pressed on the throttle and truck would not move. After a small panic attack because I was blocking about 70 cars I turned it off and then restarted pit into gear and it moved. Did this all the way home. Now while in driveway sometimes will move sometimes will not. It seems to go into gear because I can hear idle and Rpms change. Just will not move. I have just recently replacedlm flexplate but has been fine for several weeks. I am hoping it is something simple and cheap for I start new job monday and have little funds at this time. I also have problems with powerwindows, I do t know if the trans and powerwindow share the same circuit. 2 out if three relays seem to have issues and it seems that while messing with it sometimes it will move. Idk. Maybe just my mind thinking it. Is related.

Fluid level is good. And do you mean the nuts that hold flexplate on to converter. They all there but maybe loose. I will check.

My truck did the same exact thing. What did you find in the transfer case? I thought it might be an electrical problem.

Here is another concern I have, I just swaped out my stock torque converter for a Hughes Billet converter 400 miles ago and now I'm having problems. Any other ideas?

I had the same problem, Brian told me to check to see if the filter was clogged. I replaced, now just running hotter than usual.

Since we're on the topic, how long roughly does it take for your transmissions to shift into reverse from either park, neutral, or drive?
